The 2020-2021 Social Services Funding application process will become available once the City Council concludes the funding decision process.
Examples of social services programs which may be eligible of grant funding include employment assistance, crime prevention, child care and education, health services, drug abuse, recreational needs and other services that primarily assist low to moderate income residents, including abused children, battered spouses, senior citizens, those with disabilities, and homeless persons.
The Whittier Social Services Commission will review all applications to determine eligibility. The Commission’s recommendations regarding funding will be forwarded to the City Council for final approval. Agencies that receive funding may be required to make presentations at Commission meetings. Agencies submit applications for funding, which are reviewed by the Commission. They in turn make recommendations for agencies and funding amounts for the Whittier City Council’s review and approval.
